Reasonable price for a full hour of waverunner rental and both Matt and Tyler working there were very friendly and helpful. Tyler especially gave helpful tips about operation and best places to hit the waves. Nice beach and bar to hang out at after your rental too. Highly recommended.

They had wave runners on a first come first serve basis, when other companies were booked until 6:00pm. Everything was top notch, friendly, safe, and affordable.
